Healthy Cheek
Cheeks constitute the area of the face below the eyes and between the nose and the ear.
1. Try face yoga
You can use a simple, gentle facial exercise to stimulate circulation in your cheeks and make the skin look more radiant and more full. No extra fat or skin will actually develop, but your narrow cheeks may look chubbier if you practice this exercise daily.Sit tall. Sit in a chair with your back straight. Pull down the shoulder blades and relax your shoulders overall, making sure that there is as little tension as possible in that area of your body. Your chest should be outward and open. Open your mouth lightly. Imagine that you are carrying a normal conversation with someone at low to moderate volume. Open your mouth to the position you might usually have during such conversations. At this point, you must also curl both your lower and upper lip inward so that they cover your front row of teeth. Simultaneously, you should pull the corners of your mouth back, bringing them as close to the molar teeth as possible. Both corners should be pulled back in the same direction and to the same level or vertical position of your face. Your chin should move forward slightly, as well.Hold the face you have just made for a full 30 seconds. You should feel the muscles in your cheeks and mouth stretch. Release slowly to a normal resting face when done.
2. Pinch your cheeks
Work gently, making little pinches up and down both cheekbones. Small pinches likes this may not make your cheeks plumper, but this practice can give your skin a naturally blush, making your cheeks look brighter as a result. Brighter cheeks look plumper to the naked eye than pale ones do.
3. Moisturize your cheeks
Use a facial lotion or moisturizing cream on your cheeks after every shower and every time you wash your face. Let it dry naturally and do not rinse it off. If possible, look for an emollient cream. These creams are specially formulated to soothe the skin, so your cheeks will be moisturized and any chapping or damage they have gone through can also be remedied.Even if you shower in the morning, it is a good idea to apply more moisturizing cream at night just before going to bed.
4. Use a shea butter and sugar scrub
Combine 1 cup (250 ml) of melted shea butter with 3/4 cup (185 ml) granulated sugar until evenly mixed. Refrigerate this mixture until it becomes a solid, then apply it to your face after rinsing the skin with warm water. Leave it on for five minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. Make sure that you apply the scrub using gentle circular motions. You should also pat the skin dry with a soft towel when done. Shea butter is high in fatty acids, so it can help improve the elasticity of the skin on your cheeks. As a result, the skin looks younger and fuller.The sugar is a gentle exfoliant, so it can scrub away dead skin cells on your cheeks that would otherwise make the skin look dull and gaunt.
5. Try apple

Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples are your best choices, followed by Braeburn apples.Cut one whole apple into chunks and use a potato masher or handheld blender too mash it into a sauce like consistency. Apply this apply mush to your cheeks using gentle, circular strokes. Leave it on for 15 to 30 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Repeat daily.

Another way to make use of the benefits of apple is by making a special apple drink. Combine three slices of apple with three baby carrots and 1/2 cup (125 ml) lemon juice. Blend until mixed evenly. Drink this juice every morning until you notice results.The potassium in carrots can help prevent the skin from becoming dry, and this vegetable also has anti inflammatory properties that can revitalize and tone the skin. Carrots also provide more antioxidants and more of vitamins A and C.Lemon juice provides your skin with additional doses of vitamins A, B, and C, as well as other antioxidants.
